Ha, I love cards like this. Epic if it works, no real penalty if it doesn't, a great card for red.

Yep, if you win 3 flips, you get each effect.

I love this card, and I got lucky my first play too. Depending on how far I want to push it, I sometimes stop at 2 but not always.

Go for 3: on average deal 1 damage, draw 1 card, gain 1/2 a mana
Go for 2: on average deal 2.25 damage
Go for 1: on average deal 1.5 damage

No options are worth it. Need to combine with other coin flip cards to get more mileage. Then it's awesome.

How have I never found this before? This card is awesome.

I want to say it's a vulshok in the image, but they always seem to be in red/orange light, and even then, the subject seems really.... rational for a vulshok.

What am I really looking at in the art? Aside from the obvious: Amazingness.

I just clicked random card and look what i found *hehehehehehe* I am going to spend alot of time looking through all my crap cards for this

I did some simulation on this card, and here's what I came up with, using 10 million iterations with a pseudo-random coin flip. I know the probability math is easy with no Krark's Thumbs in play, but when you start adding thumbs the math becomes nontrivial. Easier to simulate via computer, for me anyway.

Going for the Lightning Bolt effect (1 win) then stopping:
50% success
50% failure

Going for the Breath of Malfegor effect (2 wins) then stopping:
25% success
75% failure

Going for the ultimate (3 wins) then stopping:
12.5% success
87.5% failure

The fun begins when you add Krark's Thumb to the mix.

Going for 1 win:
75% success
25% failure

Going for 2 wins:
56.25% success
43.75% failure

Going for 3 wins:
42.2% success
57.8% failure

Now let's try with two Krark's Thumbs and a Mirror Gallery.

Going for 1 win:
93.75% success
6.25% failure

Going for 2 wins:... (see all)
